If the rumors of a higher MP 7DII are correct then a higher quality lens will be required to achieve the resolution output from these sensors.

Even if that is true, it doesn't mean that people will be lining up for a $3k 100-400L. The old one won't perform any worse on a 24MP APS-C body. Maybe (but I don't know if that is true, or just a popular myth) it won't get the maximum performance out of the sensor. But if I wanted the maximum performance out of my 7D, I would be buying the mkII tele primes.

I'm not talking about the ideal situation or some clinical test. I'm talking about what is expedient in the real world, for real world use, and the current 100-400L is not terribly outdated. It is still a very good lens with a great price/performance ratio.
